Read the text and choose the best answer to fill in the blanks.

A gesture is an action that sends a message from one person to another without using words. We use to communicate with others. There are some gestures that have completely different meanings depending on when and they are used.

When an American wants that something is OK or good, he raises his hand and makes a circle with his thumb and forefinger. The circle sign has only one meaning for him. He might be to learn that in other countries it can mean something very different.

In Japan, for instance, it is the gesture for money. In France, it means “zero” or “worthless”. Such differences can lead to all kinds of misunderstanding when foreigners meet. But why is it that the same gesture has so many different meanings?

 

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

It is not easy for adult students of English to improve their accents. Unlike children, who are flexible, adults often find it hard to change the way they speak. This is why even the top or smartest adult students have difficulty with pronunciation. There are several things that an international student can do to improve his or her pronunciation.

One method is to sign up for a pronunciation class. Studying pronunciation can help students to understand the rules of English, but in order to practice speaking, students often need to be exposed to English outside the classroom as well. This is why many students say that studying in an English-speaking country greatly affects their English. Living with native speakers can help students to pick up new vocabulary as well as improve their accents. International students can also learn important cultural information. This can help to prevent misunderstandings that can occur when people from different cultures live together.

Living with someone from another culture can be difficult. International students are usually excited when they first show up their new homes, but after a few months, they may start to think about their home countries and get homesick. Students who are homesick get depressed quickly. They might cry a lot or want to be alone. This makes it difficult for them to make friends and learn English.

What can be the best title of the passage?
  • Learning English
  • The Problems Adult Students May Face
  • How To Overcome Homesickness
  • How To Improve Pronunciation Skill

According to the passage, why do many international students feel depressed?

 
  • Because they cannot improve their pronunciation.
  • Because they are lonely.
  • Living with someone from another culture can be difficult.
  • Because they are homesick.

In the context of the passage, what does “to be exposed to English” mean?

  • living in an English-speaking environment
  • avoiding speaking outside the classroom
  • listening to native speakers
  • imitating native speakers
Which of the following is true?
  • To avoid misunderstanding about cultures, students should live with native speakers.
  • Many students feel depressed because they cannot improve their pronunciation.
  • On their arrival, most international students may forget about the problems because they are very excited.
  • The passage implies that adult learners shouldn’t study English in an English-speaking country to avoid these problems.
